VariousModern Northern Soul ... CD
Acid Jazz (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
Contemporary cuts that burn with a classic flavor – all served up by 21st Century artists who draw a lot of inspiration from the Northern Soul sound of the 60s! The album focuses mostly on British artists, and also serves as a great reminder of the way that scene in the 60s helped bring a whole new level of appreciation for American soul music – as young mods picked up on key soul singles from the US, and created a level of support that's continued to have an impact for years to come! Because of that, there's also maybe a bit of a mod vibe to some of these songs – but in the more soulful side of the mod spectrum – as with 60s Brit groups who had no problem blending influences from Ray Charles and Jimmy McGriff with more blue-eyed musical leanings. The production is great – at the level you'd expect from Acid Jazz – and titles include "Are You Trying To Be Lonely" by Paul Weller & Andy Lewis, "From Now On" by Magnus Carlson, "Left Right & Centre" by Lord Large & Dean Parris, "Girlfriend" by The Filthy Six, "Pandora" by Men Of North Country, "Can't Get You Outta My Head" by Third Degree, "She's An Attraction" by New Street Adventure, "Alive In My Heart" by Andy Lewis with Keni Burke, "Coming Back" by Smoove with Jess Roberts, and "No More Heroes" by Night Trains.

VariousSoul Of Spanish Harlem – Beautiful Soul Music From The Heart Of New York's Spanish Harlem ... LP
Fania/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99 22.99
One of the hippest sets we've ever seen on Spanish Harlem – a collection that goes way past the Latin Soul hits, to dig deep in the uptown underground at the end of the 60s! The package is compiled with gems from the Fania catalog, but rally moves past the obvious – going for some of the more obscure artists who recorded singles for some of the smaller Fania-held labels – and often focusing on tunes that drew more from late 60s soul and funk than they did from any Latin rhythms of the time. The singers are especially wonderful – and often hit a vibe that's right up there with some of Joe Bataan's best of the period – richly soulful, but often deeply personal too – never as polished as chart soul, and often showing a grittier, more realistic style that's totally great – especially when mixed with instrumentation as tight as this! Titles include "Reflections Of My Life" by 125th Street Candy Store, "On Old Broadway" by 107th Street Stickball Team, "Don't Be Afraid" by Lebron Brothers, "Central Park" by Harvey Averne Dozen, "Heaven" by Tito Ramos, "Your Smile" by Parris, "Some Lonely Heart" by Ronnie Marks, "There's No Girl" by Olivieri, "Maria Maria" by King Nando, "Already Satisfied" by Tony Middleton & Bobby Matos, "Nitty Boo Boo" by The Nitty Sextette, "Lonely Has Been My Day" by Ralphie & The Latin Lovers, "I'm Gonna Leave You" by Russell Cohen & The New Yorkers, and "Ain't No Big Thing" by Ralfi Pagan.

✨✧ VariousSound Signature Presents – These Songs That Should’ve Been Out On Wax By Now Part 2 ... CD
Sound Signature, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great idea for a series – contemporary tracks from the Detroit underground – all waiting to be issued as singles by the Sound Signature label – but all delayed because of the big backlog at pressing plants in these "vinyl madness" years! We're huge fans of the CD format – so really, the presentation here hardly matters to us – and in fact, having all these great tracks together is way more satisfying than digging them up on 12" singles – as we can really immerse ourselves in the music, and really just be flabbergasted by all the untapped genius working in the Motor City these days! The sound is even better than Sound Signature material from a decade ago – as the songs soar beautifully, with an even more righteous vision – and really gets us excited at the possibilities for the scene in years to come. There's no individual notes on the tracks, but this second volume features tracks by Tony Allen, Carl McIntosh, Theo Parris, Marcellus Pittman, The Unit, Duminie Desporres, DJ Kemit, and Andrew Ashong.

Theo ParrishParallel Dimensions ... CD
Sound Signature, 2000. New Copy ... $11.99
Amazing work from Detroit future house genius Theo Parrish! Parallel Dimensions couldn't be a more appropriate title for the set – as Parrish takes the languorous, hypnotic elements learned from years in the Detroit house scene and blends those loops and beats with a rich tapestry of distorted organic sounds and rhythms. Dissonant horns, keys and chanted vocals filter throughout these long numbers – sort of holding the groove together for the trippier soundscapes. The vibe is wholly unique – going way beyond a simple dancefloor groove – into territory that works on a deeper, headier level! A signature statement from the hugely talented Theo Parrish! Tracks include "So Now What", "Anansies Dances", "Serengeti Echoes", "Reaction To Plastic", "Space Ghosts", "Brain", the 12-plus minute epic "Summertime Is Here", Brain", "Violet Green" and more! CD

Theo ParrishSound Signature Sounds Vol 2 ... CD
Sound Signature, 2007. New Copy ... $11.99
Spare sounds from the Detroit scene – the kind of grooves that Theo Parrish and his scene have been making for years, and really opening up the frontiers – even when the rest of the world may not have been looking! The sounds here are spare and spacey, but still mostly rhythmic – that post-techno sound from the Detroit underground, almost as influenced by jazzier styles of years past – but set loose in a vibe that's certainly 21st Century overall! The collection brings together tunes that were mostly issued as singles, and include collaborations with Dwele and trumpeter John Douglas – on tracks that include "Dirt Rhodes", "Rain For Jimmy", "I Can Take It", "Suns Of Osiris", "Get Got", "Instant Insanity", and "Timeislafincharunninout".

✨✧ Paul ParrishForest Of My Mind ... LP
Music Factory, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty incredible bit of late 60s psych pop by singer-songwriter Paul Parrish – and with quite a bit of funk in the mix, thanks in no small part to the Detroit session players – with arrangements by Mike Theodore and Dennis Coffey! Paul Parrish never became a household name, but he's hugely talented – with a big vocal presence here, and he wrote most of the songs himself – save for a couple nicely chosen covers of Lennon-McCartney and Holland-Dozier-Holland gems. The arrangements are fantastic, with swirling strings, jazz funk flute and other adventurous touches. Titles include "English Sparrows", "Suzanne", the trippy "Walking In The Forrest (Of My Mind)", "Tiny Alice", "Morning Train", "Flowers In The Park", "The White Birds (Return To Warm Seas)", "I Can't Help Myself" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousTheo Parrish – Black Jazz Signature – Black Jazz Records 1971 to 1975 ... CD
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Theo Parrish takes on the music of Black Jazz Records – yet somehow manages to make the whole thing come across with a cosmic groove that's all his own! By that, we don't mean that Theo's messing with the cuts – just that his mix here really highlights the more expansively electric and rhythmically angular elements of the label's classic catalog – sounds that are clearly an inspiration for a huge number of 21st Century musicians and producer – not just Parrish himself! There's a richly spiritual vibe to the whole set – and the collection is easily one of the best presentations of the Black Jazz label we've ever heard – stunning from start to finish. Cuts include "My Favorite Things" by Gene Russell, "Those Who Chant" by Walter Bishop, "Jupiter" and "Convulsions" by The Awakening, "Trance Dance" by Doug Carn, "Time & Space" by Rudolph Johnson, "Criss Cross" and "BE" by Calvin Keys, and "Blue Bossa" by Walter Bishop Jr. CD

✨✧ Theo ParrishPreacher's Coming/Gullah Geechee ... 12-inch
Sound Signature, 2018. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
A deep deep groove from Theo Parrish – and a record that shows him reaching out even more with his musical vision! "Preacher's Comin" is already great enough – a record with a sampled spoken example of the title, over these warmly flowing beats and almost gospel-influenced piano and other elements in the mix. But on "Gullah Geechee", Parrish hits even more expansive space – working with handclaps and Gullah-styled vocals – served up here in a spare acoustic track that lets you hear the core of their sound – then spread out into a righteously rolling groove, complete with sung and spoken passages! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Man ParrishHip Hop, Be Bop (Don't Stop) (ext)/Heatstroke (club) ... 12-inch
Importe/12, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
A classic electro groove – and one of the tracks that's a contender for the origin of the word "hip hop"! A very nice groove with an early Arthur Baker feel, and the kind of cut that we slept on during the 80s, but which sounds totally great today! 12-inch, Vinyl record

EPMDStrictly Business ... LP
Fresh/Capitol, 1988. New Copy (reissue)... On June 8, 2018
EPMD's incredible full length debut – straight up classic hip hop that gave the genre a whole new twist. Bottom heavy funked up Long Island hip hop with what was considered slow flow rhymes at the time, and Erick and Parrish's take on funky samples that managed to bring together hard to get breaks and commercial cuts in an age when you could have both street appeal and indie cred. With the classic cuts "It's My Thing", "You Gots To Chill", "Strictly Business", "You're A Customer", "Get Off The Bandwagon" and "I'm Housin'", plus "So Let The Funk Flow", "The Steve Martin", "DJ K La Boss" and "Jane".
